This is the Midgetoy Ford Pickup Truck issued circa 1971 in blue.

It is a one piece casting with all detail such as bumpers, lights, body lines and trim, doors, etc. cast into the metal. There is no glazing or base to the model. On the under-side the model carries the legend "Midgetoy, Rockford, Ill.U.S.A" cast on 3 lines under the cab roof.

All wheels are of a solid black plastic hub and tyre type. The flat head, tapered axles appear to have been pressure fitted to the wheels and are held in place by being pinch clamped to columns protruding from the underside of the casting.

I do not know when this item was issued but believe it to have been circa 1971. It has an approximate scale of 1:80.
